Northrop Grumman's digital cockpit solution (shown) was demonstrated during a flight test on a UH-60L helicopter.

Redstone Defense Systems selected Northrop Grumman Corp. to supply and integrate mission avionics equipment for a digital cockpit upgrade of the U.S. Army's UH-60L Black Hawk helicopters. Northrop Grumman will provide a scalable, fully integrated mission equipment package for the UH‑60L cockpit and will replace the older analog gauges with digital electronic instrument displays. The new designation for this upgraded aircraft will be UH-60V. The system virtually replicates the newer UH‑60M pilot-vehicle interface, providing a common training environment. The system features a centralized processor with a partitioned, modular operational flight program with an integrated architecture that enables new capabilities through software-only solutions rather than hardware additions. The system is also smaller in size, lower in weight, and requires less power than legacy processing systems.
